Re: “Doing Too Much?

I would have been more interesting if the reporter would have questioned Ms. Wright and Mr. Mentzer about the multiple non-profits controlled by Ms. Wright.

Records with the Arizona Corporation Commission show that Ms.Wright has four non-profits at 4888 E. Broadway Blvd.

The Giving Tree II
Board of Directors: Libby Wright

The Giving Tree Outreach Program Inc.
Board of Directors: Libby Wright

Compassion Hope Center
Board of Directors: Libby Wright

The GT Outreach Program Inc.
Board of Directors: Libby Wright & Dick Mentzer

In addition, the Arizona Corporation Commission website regarding THE GIVING TREE II.

Statement of Finacical Position for year the year ended 12/31/2007.
(note: the 2008 annual report is delinquent)

OTHER CHECKING = $315,547.25
OTHER FIXED ASSETS = $468,042.39
TOTAL ASSETS = $783,589.64

OTHER PAYROLL = $1,280.05
MORTGAGES = $204,596.73

GRAND TOTAL = $564,764.44

Regarding property owned by the non-profits.

A search of the Assessor's office records at their website shows three parcel owned by GT OUTREACH PROGRAM
on 4888 E BROADWAY.

#122182050; with addresses of 1202/1204 N. Dodge Blvd. (a duplex)

#126133770; with addresses of 4650 E. Eastland, 730/732 S. Swan (a church)


#131041910; with address of 4701 E 25TH ST (a single family residence)

The story could have been far more revealing about just what Ms. Wright is doing.

In my opinion, it appeared that Mr. Mentzer was trying to put some distance between Ms. Wright's running of the non-profits from the statement quoted in the story "'(Wright) pretty much calls the shots there; she put this all together,'Mentzer says" and "Mentzer says the board is more like an advisory board that has no control over its executive director."

A board with no control over the executive director is not a good sign.
